Project Description

Mikey D’Astoli is a Teacher/Choreographer who is signed to Clear Talent Group agency. He started dancing at age 13 at the FUNKtion dance complex with a strong focus on Hip Hop styles such as bboying, popping, house, locking, vogue, waacking, and industry styles. Performances include opening up for American Idol’s “Jax”, The Red Hot Chili Peppers 2017 Tour, The Cartoon Network Anti-Bullying Tour, showcases at Webster Hall, Monsters of Hip Hop, The PULSE, and many more. Mikey has been featured on Tv commercials such as “Bop it Tetris”, “Juicy Drop Pop”, and “Jenga tetris” as a dancer and actor. You can find him in music videos for artists Jax(LA LA Land), The Red Hot Chili Peppers(Go Robot), and Vita Chambers(What If). He can also be seen in the ongoing Netflix series “The Get Down”(Directed by Baz Luhrmann), where he plays the role of ‘Crash’. Also a principal dancer in the Feature Film “Going in Style”(Directed by Zach Braff). Mikey has taken classes from Hip Hop to Ballet and all in between, he has used what he learned to derive his own unique style. Mikeys pieces are full of storytelling and almost every dance that is made has a meaning or underlying message behind it. Mikey believes that dance is a way to express yourself and heavily incorporates improv(freestyle) into his work and teaches others how to move freely without the fear of being judged or ridiculed for their style of dance. History of Hip-Hop is also taught so students may gain knowledge of how the styles of Hip-Hop came to be and what it is all about.
